Training camp water balloon fight goes viral


Television sports anchors were talking about Hornet football a long time before the season began. A water balloon fight orchestrated by head coach Garin Higgins broke up the August heat of training camp. Once the video was posted on YouTube, network reporters, bloggers and Facebook posters made it a sensation.

The scene scored close to 24,000 hits on YouTube, and treated ESPN and other television network viewers to the lighter side of Emporia State football.
